We offer Study Tours all around the world. Underneath there are some examples of themes/topics we could organize for a study tour in Europe.
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The Netherlands has large areas which are situated below sea level (up to minus 6,76 meter), which are prone to flooding. Fortunately the Dutch have learned to manage the water well since the flood disaster in 1953. The Dutch can help address unique water challenges that other countries face, like flooding and drought, Coast protection, and rising sea levels that threaten major cities and small communities. The knowledge and experience that the Netherlands has in water management, with its many institutions and Universities, makes this country the host for a Study Tour in water management. This Study Tour will focus on subjects such as adapting to climate change for delta regions in the decades to come, the economics and governance of water and innovation in water technology. It explores how protection methods can be used and applied to coastal regions.
